Some photos from the early afternoon portion of this weekend’s WXPN XPoNential Music festival at Wiggins Park on The Camden NJ waterfront. Cheers Elephant kicked the day off on the Marina stage in fine style with an outstanding set, followed by new wavey sounds of Zolof The Rock And Roll Destroyer and then the rhythmic indie rock of Delaware’s Spinto Band on the main stage.

Well the weather was absolutely perfect for this weekend’s XPoNential Music Fest and I have to say I had an incredible time. Here’s the amazing group of bands I caught sets by over Friday, Saturday,and Sunday:

The Fratellis, Earl Greyhound, Fountains of Wayne, Ruder Than You, Cracker, Switches, Bitter Bitter Weeks, G.Love Solo, Sam Roberts Band, Eastern Conference Champions, The A-Sides, Beretta 76, Martin Sexton, Kim Richey, The Cat Empire, Will Hoge, Illinois,Hoots & Hellmouth,The Swimmers,The Smithereens, Adrienne Young, Rhett Miller, Julian Velard, ALO

Three days of generally excellent music with especially great sets turned in by Sam Roberts Band,The Cat Empire and The Smithereens on the main stage, while Beretta 76,Earl Greyhound, The Swimmers, and Illinois really lit up the second stage.

The Switches took the award for best band I’d never hear of before, their catchy blend of Brit Pop was a pleasant surprise and a future must buy.

Here’s a few random photos from the weekend.
